If you’re a TikTok addict like I am, I’m sure you’ve seen the viral tomato feta cheese pasta recipe going around. The original recipe required us to bake the cheese & tomatoes.. but if you don’t have an oven, fret not! Here’s my take on the recipe without using an oven! ?

* Recipe calls for 3-4 people.


- 2 blocks of feta cheese

- 2 medium holland onions

- 3 cloves of garlic (optional)

- 600g of cherry tomatoes

- mushrooms (optional, you can also add other protein of choice)

- chilli flakes (optional)

- olive oil

- salt & pepper

- fresh basil (optional, can also use dried basil too)

- pasta of choice


1. Boil your pasta of choice according to the instructions on the pasta box. Once the pasta is done, save about 1 cup of the water, drain & set aside.

2. Slice up your onions, garlic, mushrooms or protein of choice & set aside.

3. In a pan, fry your cherry tomatoes in olive oil. Be generous with the oil to prevent the pasta from drying out!

4. Once the cherry tomatoes are tender, fry in your onions & garlic until tender & translucent.

5. Add in your feta cheese. For this recipe, I used about 1.5 blocks! But it also depends on what brand of cheese & how big is the block your bought. So you might need to gauge from there! Cook the cheese until it turns soft.

6. After cooking the cheese, mix & lightly smash the cheese, tomatoes and onions together to create the sauce. Add in your protein of choice & cook for another 5-10 minutes or until the protein is cooked.

7. Season the sauce with salt, black pepper & chilli flakes according to your liking. If you don’t want spice, you can leave the chilli flakes out!

8. Finally, add in the pasta & stir. If it gets a little dry, add a bit of the pasta water that we saved beforehand. Add in some fresh basil (or dried ones depending on what you have) & you’re done!

9.Serve & eat while it’s hot!
